Benefits of the Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt for Kids

This Valentine scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your valentine theme. It provides many benefits for your student.

  • Scavenger hunts boost observation skills. As your child looks for objects, he will develop better observation skills.
  • Scavenger hunts require movements; this promotes gross motor development.
  • A scavenger hunt can provide safe sensory input for your student (feel the fuzzy teddy bear, taste the cupcake, smell the flowers, etc.).
  • Coloring in the items on the page also boosts fine motor skills.
  • If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
